, no one would be able to say that they were okay without sharp reprisal. the fact that we don't say these things out loud and we don't see that out loud regularly is really the only reason that i can understand that they don't get taken care of covetousness, change, he falls, and that was my kind of participation in occupy, to find these things together, to find this a team together and find a way to make change together. i will then echo what was said prior to me that nothing went horribly wrong. nothing in diet, and that all of these types of movements take a long time. and if you are particularly patient and particularly grounded i think in activism then you take a 20 year view and a 100 year view and if you are really good you realize your lifetime doesn't matter particularly much and you think that is mere few. there are a number of people that first level often occupy that are willing to do that. >> thank you so much. let's hear your perspective. >> in terms of why occupied a rose i don't have much to add, but i think that something dramatic has happened in the last 15 years o
that the neocons hold for us? >> i don't know if it's that stated, but it certainly is underlining a lot of what we're hearing about hagel now. a lot of the media attention has been on some of the past statements involving the jewish lobby as he called it, involving the gay ambassador to luxembourg, but those are sort of side shows. what this comes down to is the future of obama's foreign policy. chuck hagel in many ways represents the clearest break yet by this administration from the george w. bush era foreign policy. keep in mind the president continued a lot of these bush era programs. we haven't really had a substantive comprehensive conversation about what went wrong in iraq. chuck hagel's nomination represents a clean break. i think that's very scary for a lot of these neocons. >> let me go to peter. i have always respected the way your brain works. you think a lot, which is a good thing for a writer to do occasionally is to think. you think and you really change your mind, which is very refreshing. and i think you've wrestled with these issues of the middle east, and i guess the question is
standoff, the gunman and three people lay dead inside the home. the truth is we don't have the time to list all the shootings across this country over the last 24 hours. but we do have time to mention that just two days before the president's inauguration a coalition of gun rights activists are calling for a gun appreciation day. even before the task force has made a single recommendation, this coalition wants to organize against what they say is the president's post-sandy hook assault on gun rights. this is why the silence of those children killed at sandy hook elementary school must continue to speak loudly until action is taken in relation to gun safety and gun violence across this nation. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> the folks that brought you the iraq war. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the folks who quack for iraq have a knack for bad ideas. they pushed us into war ten years ago, they made their case with lies and half truths and flimflam. we had to get revenge fo
will do at the confirmation hearing. i don't believe there's moral equivalency between the two sides which is the suggestion of that article. >> he believe there is moral equivalency? >> you will have to ask him what he believes. my judgment and knowledge of chuck chuck and my suggestions with chuck would suggest that he wants to see both sides come to the table and find a solution. he spores the peace process. but he is upper most, a very, very strong supporter of the state of israel. he has voted for billions and billions of dollars of aid to israel. i have no question when it comes to challenges that have anything to do with putting israel at risk, chuck hagel will be on israel's side. remember, he is working for a president. and he will follow the poll so i was that president. >> the renew deed bait about iraq is also occurring. the "new york times" writes about that today. in his memoir, he writes something very poignant about the iraq war. he writes, "it all comes down to the fact we were asked to vote on a res lation based on half-truths, untruths and winful thinking. i voted for th
. this is something that don rumsfeld tried and failed to do. it's something that bob gates tried and failed to do in any serious way. and now, given the budget pressures, this is going to be the moment for performance. >> rose: a couple of points, i guess. rumsfeld would argue that we had a big war came along and bob gates would argue that in the end he did cut it somewhat. >> somewhat. but if you look at the total national security budget, charlie, which would be not just the pentagon but also the intelligence agencies, homeland security, it's basically doubled since the 9/11 attacks. >> rose: and weapons systems you don't really need in the judgment of many people other than those people who represent the districts where they're located. >> leftovers from the cold war and, remember, the president himself came in supported by chuck hagel on this point with the thought that there was a moment here to really build down on the nuclear force. and so far they have not been able to do that except some modest cuts when they passed the start treaty with russia early in the president's time. >> rose: tal
's very close to this president. i do not believe there will be a tough time for brennan. i don't know. john, what do you think? >> john, add to that the drone issue. there are a lot of people who have said that he was a big part of shaping the policy on shaping the unmanned aircraft and some people called them a tool for extra judicial killings. >> there will be -- i think best way to summarize it is this way. the hague el confirmation will be more personal. the brennan confirmation is more of a policy discussion. was the administration flat footed in benghazi? reactive or proactive with the arab spring? you make the point about the drones. this is very controversial. there are some democrat that is don't like it, sort of ron paul, rand paul libertarians that don't like it and facing sharp policy questions on that. the administration's policy will be when americans are wary of projecting military force overseas, the drone tactics have been largely effective. doesn't mean there won't be questions of using them going forward but i think the brennan confirmation process is about policy s
these matters resolved? look, the biggest problem confronting the country is not taxes, it's spending. we don't have this problem because we tax too little. we have it because we spend too much. we now have a $16.4 trillion national debt, as big as our economy. that alone makes us look a lot like greece. this administration has driven spending from 21% of our economy up to almost 25% of our economy. we've got to stop using the credit card, and any opportunity we have to engage the other side in a discussion about quitting the spending spree, we're going to engage in. >> and the question is, how do you follow through on your strategy, and, you know, a lot of your allies are worried about that prospect. "the wall street journal" editorial page said "the political result would be far worse if republicans start this fight only to cave in the end. you can't take a hostage you aren't prepared to shoot. do the two gop leaders have a better strategy today than they did in 2011?" and i guess you're hearing that phrase more and more now, shoot the hostage. are you prepared to do it, to see the country
. how would he advise this president on how to overcome the threat? >> first of all, i don't think that is a correct assessment. chuck hagel said nothing is off the table but one of the things he believes in is prospects for negotiation. we have been ready to negotiate under the right set of circumstances with iran for the last several years with our friends and allies so, force is the table but i'm glad we have people like the president and like chuck hagel who will be very careful when you start throwing around the terms -- >> he says it's not feasible. do you agree it is not feasible. >> what is the not feasible? >> military option? >>> military option is always feasible, you tell me what the option is. are we going to blow up tehran or go after facilities that might be well protected or hidden? and i think bob gates, the previous secretary of defense, who pointed out the difficulty of striking these places is a real one. so any military option is feasible in terms of dropping bombs but what is the result of that military attack? with respect to the revolutionary guard, he has r
? and a lot of people don't think about that, man. a lot of people don't ponder the outcome of what they doing. they just do it until they realize, damn, man, this consequence is too harsh, what i just did. the reward don't outpay the risk. and before you know it, you're paying with your life, man. i'm paying with my life. i've got 50 years, man? you know, that's a life. i'm 27. 50 plus 27. 77 years old, are you serious? come on, man. that's life. >>> we're going into nut country. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. paranoid america is climbing out of its bunker. the near possibility, the near possibility that the obama administration might stop the easy sale of the scariest guns to the scariest people has aroused the slippery slope crowd. these cousins of the grassy noel folks believe that any limit on the wide-open market for guns and ammo threatens their own hardware. any reasonable action by the american people to stop the carnage is to these paranoids the first unfaultering step towards mass confiscation of everything from
the criticism that the white house is secretive about the drone program. they don't talk about it and almost don't acknowledge it and clear that the president is committed to this and an issue from the left. >> david, as s.e. said, i think the left did not for most or all of president obama's first term really hold him accountable on drones the way maybe you would have expected them to do or tried to with the national security policies under george w. bush. it seem there is's a natural opportunity at least maybe to pursue some of the answers to ask some of questions that weren't asked the last four years in the hearings of john brennan as the cia director. is that something you expect will happen at all? >> i do. >> will there be some aggression of the left there? >> i think there will be. brennan is involved in the program and some of the stories today you are seeing looking and as people start to scour the records. regardless of whether he's confirmed or not, it's part of the discussion. however, i think like i said that obama is committed to john brennan. as his sort of adviser, the president

[applause] >> one of the things i'm asked is why did i write a book about this one combat outpost in afghanistan? it's not really my area of expertise. i'm a political reporter, the senior white house correspondent for abc news. the answer is i feel like i at any time pick combat outpost quieting to write about. i felt like come about outpost keeting picked me. on october 3, 2009, i was in the recovery room of the hospital with my dear wife, jennifer, and i was holding our day-old son jack, and everything was fine. she had a baby so that's why we were there. and out of the corner of my eye on the television, i heard a story that was just harrowing from this remote outpost, that i'd never heard of, at the bottom of thr
and played -- i don't know. it was bad. >> i really went to bed. >> if i didn't stay up the previous night -- >> i know. >> you didn't stay up for it? >> i did not. and if i didn't stay up to that, i'm not staying up for some football game, i'll tell you that. >> my soap opera boys who are here. >> i was thinking about you watching the -- because we hadn't seen the actual end of season two. and i was thinking about what you're missing. there's no way you should not be watching it. >> eventually i will watch it. >> there are. >> i can watch the one that's on. i need to watch it when i -- it's like the new way people view. when you can, when you get a chance. >> did you see that michelle caruso cabrera has the third season on dvd? >> she gave me my soap. >> she did? >> she did. >> she came over the other day. you weren't there at the time, but she was going to show them off. >> yeah. >> let's start with the markets this morning, as well. the s&p retreating from a five-year high yesterday. the stocks finished the session off their lows. u.s. equities are indicated a little weaker. dow futures
was no underwriting. this lender by the way saddled with the new york attorney general's office because i don't know of you guys remember, it was called the preferred lender list where you know lenders were in some cases accused of paying b-schools for preferential treatment and for them to steer students toward a particular loan products. that was the case with this lender. when you think about, you can sort of understand some of the anger and how a generation may rightly feel very duped in some ways and stock with very little relief at this point now that they are so far in debt. >> now a look at the tenure and legacy of house speaker john boehner. we will show you as much of the "washington journal" segment as we can until the richard nixon 100 birthday gala in about half an hour. >> host: on wednesday here in the "washington journal" in our last hour taking look at a recent magazine piece. we are joined by robert costa at national review to talk about a couple of pieces you have written. we will start with the most recent. "boehner the survivor" is what you wrote on january 4, 2014. 13, excuse m
are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little, if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice, and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in your face term. >> reporter: and we should also note that mitch mcconnell, the senate minority leader, the top republican here in the senate, made some softer comments on the other sunday talk shows. he was saying that chuck hagel will get some thorough vetting, will get tough kwequestions, bue was not talking about it in the same stark terms as senator graham. president obama is making this nomination with congress out of town, so there's also time for this nomination to melt away. we'll have to see. >>> i want to take a closer look now at the anti-israel claims against hagel through the eyes of a seasoned diplomat. nicholas burns is a former undersecretary of state. he joins us by phone. good morning, mr. ambassador. >> good morning. >> before we speak, i want to tell people exactly what hagel said that -- those comments that are haunting him today. in one stat
, in fact, take on their pet pork barrel projects, even though the pentagon has said we don't want those programs. we don't want those airplanes. congress, instead, votes -- goes ahead and votes for it because it means money and votes back home for many members of congress. so i think that ultimately will be the biggest challenge for secretary of defense chuck hagel if, in fact, he is confirmed, tamron. >> you took issue with what first read pointed out, which is the politics which is what i was starting out the conversation with you regarding, the politics of this, when you have general mcchrystal and we'll play him later today on the "today" show this morning talking about a disconnect between the generals and those leaders of the military and the white house particularly in afghanistan. so it's not asking you to delve in to the politics but face it, it is political. >> reporter: well, you know, the trust between the u.s. military leadership and the civilian leadership is always a very delicate balance. you don't find -- and i guess if you want to strictly define the word politics, the
the book pretty readily. with publishers producing fewer books every year now, if they don't patronize stores like this or independent stores, they're going to find that there aren't going to be books around. there is already a decrease in the number of books that are available because of the-books, textbooks being put on line instead of being produced. so there will definitely be a decrease in the number of books available. if stores like this still survive there won't be books readily available for the public. as the book business continues to change, i would like to just be able to persevere and stay here for the indefinite future. >> for more information on book tv recent visit to providence, rhineland, and the miniature cities visited by our local content vehicles could to c-span.org / local content. >> next on book tv, henry gallagher recalls his assignment as officer in charge of the security detail for james maraniss, the first african-american admitted to the university of mississippi in september 1962. this is about 60 meant -- 40 minutes. >> thank you, ralph, john. my gratit
first and how that's anti-semitic i don't know and that's the issue as far as i can tell regarding the rhetoric of hagel. >> john, another issue of particular of those like me on the left is hagel's comments that he made back in 1998 opposing president clinton's ambassador or nominee to be ambassador calling him openly aggressively gay and recently apologized for the comments and you were really instrumental in getting don't ask don't tell repelled so how do people with an equality for lgbt community and square those comments with supporting hagel's nomination? >> well, we obviously were involved in supporting, you know, a lot of lgbt community, the argument is if you served in iraq and afghanistan and three times why are you kicked out when we're redeployed? i think senator hagel will support the president's policy with lgbt equality and i think that senator hagel did a great job to apologize for it. it wasn't an appropriate statement and something i agree with. when it comes down to the issues of the pentagon that's important like nuclear waste and discretionary spending in the b
with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't walk through an airport metal detector and not get reminded of the shrapnel he took in that sad but heroic american war. the president wants chuck hagel in that post because he thinks like him and has proven he's got the brains to protect this country. hagel long ago proved he's got the heart. don't you think? i don't hate the people trying to stop the president from picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton woul

are very. were not going to talk about that. don't worry. i was forced to make and a couple of questions raised about "witness" and one might say more generally anti-communism are relevant today. the first place where subfor clearly gets development when we deal with the great communist power communist power of the day, china. chambers -- this is a passage i like. chambers wrote, what i had been felt for me like 30 rags. the rags wrecks itself for me where not a there communism but a new web in the mine, loomis shroud which has part of the spirit of man paralyzing the name of rationalism, the instinct of his soul. denying him the name of knowledge the reality of his soul and his birthright in that mystery on which new knowledge falters and shatters at every step. we now watch the soulless chinese communist party battle chinese christians, chinese buddhists, and believe that they can only offer a few more better factory jobs in port cities that will provide the answer to the chinese people's freedom. everything in that sense that chambers wrote about communism and its failures is quite ad

in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says

live on surfaces. a lot of people don't realize this. they can stay on these stays for eight hours. say your co-worker is sick, you touch their keyboard, you touch your nose or mouth and now you're infected. the problem escalates if you spend several hours in tight quarters like an airplane. passengers in two rows or behind of the infected person at highest risk. the best way to kill germs is to wash your hands and do it often. use real so and real water. the problem is that most people don't actually wash their hands long enough. my best advice, actually sing the happy birthday song twice while you're washing your hands. it's not quick to get rid of these viruses. another key to prevention is getting the flu shot. getting vaccinated, reduces your risk of getting the flu by around 60%. another benefit, martin, to getting your flu shot is if you do get sick your symptoms won't last as long and be as severe as compared to those who weren't vaccinates. >> parents of children diagnosed with the flu might have another problem on their hands. a shortage of the drug that's prescribed to childr

will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.
